Best most user friendly description I have read. A must read and print out and apply to our race vehicle.

Good article and great vid of the Nish save , , saw it from the start line as a dust cloud but looks much different from the side view

one area Eva does not get to is height of COG , it got us this yr with new bodywork putting the COP much higher than COG and causing a high speed wiggle
http://www.msgroup.org/forums/mtt/topic ... PIC_ID=137 covers it pretty well , same calc would apply to cars which i assume you would want weight lower to flat spin rather than roll with a loss of direction
